Why Do You Use WordPress?
I use WordPress because it makes my job and my clients lives easier. Clients can make on the fly content changes, and I can better assist them with additional functionality as needed.

When and How Did You Start Using WordPress?
I started using WordPress for personal blogging waaaaaay back in the Cafelog/B2 days. Over the years it has morphed from a personal interest to a professional interest as well.

What Tips or Resources would you recommend to a new WordPress User?
Don’t be afraid to jump in and screw something up. Between backing up your website and revision history, you are covered. So don’t be afraid to jump in and start messing with things.

What advice would you give someone who’s building a business around WordPress design or development?
Keep it simple and easy to use.

How do you stay informed about WordPress (news, tips, etc)?
I read blogs and follow several WordPress related twitter streams.

What do you like most about WordCamps?
Meeting new people. I go to WordCamps to meet and socialize with new people.
